German Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed on the 23 September 2013 to maintain the same course in the eurozone crisis as she started negotiations for a grand coalition with the Social-Democrats.

Just a few seats short of a majority, Angela Merkel said she was ready to begin coalition talks with the center-left SPD. But with animosity on both sides, it was not quite clear who would be courting whom.
